Hi, I got my A-level results last week and I was kinda disappointed. I needed AAA to study Economics at Nottingham but i got ABB unfortunately. I got a place in surrey luckily for econ and politics instead but I'm not sure I want to do Econ as I didn't do it A-level and I'm not entirely sure if I even want to go university at the moment. I'm thinking of doing a gap year and doing the whole econ a-level. I'm also of thinking of retaking one math exam to bump the overall to an A. So hopefully I'll end up with AAA at the end of the gap year and end up at any uni that asks for that, maybe even Notts. I'm just asking if this is possible while maybe working a part time job? Is it worth it? thanks for any advice.

If you're unsure about what you want to study or whether uni is for you then a gap year is definitely advisable. Studying economics at A level is very different from studying it at uni but you do need to have a strong interest in the subject to study it at uni. You'll need to work very hard to do an A level in a year along with a part time job but it should be doable.
